This is the only existing photograph of my grandfather on my father's side, Eduard Munk. Unfortunately it's of poor quality. Most of our oldest relatives were probably door-to-door salesmen, only this grandfather, Eduard Munk, like many village Jews, had a pub, as he had a liquor sales permit. And because just the pub wouldn't have supported him, he also had a small farm. Grandpa married Paulina Glasnerova from Cernuce, which is also a small village in the Polabi region. He's buried in the cemetery in Bysice, not far from Privory. Not long ago we replaced Grandpa's tombstone there, which someone had stolen.
